Another Year Is Coming
Vasu Reddy from Chicago
Much like last year, another new year is coming. As we do with our own Indian New Year celebrations, the English calendar allows us to celebrate the beginning of another calendar year with good spirits. If you are in the USA, it is the end of another tax year, and people start to get their files together to either pay Uncle Sam, or also sometimes get money back if they overpaid. People are buying gifts for Christmas because everyone else in the USA is at the mall trying to spend all the money they have and use their plastic to the limit. Nothing wrong with spending money, but I wish we did it at Diwali also, so the spirit of killing Ravana would be displayed in our spending habits with gusto for the festival of lights. I enjoy the time of Christmas and New Year, as people are eating, drinking, giving gifts and by and large worrying if they are giving the right (expensive enough) gifts and receiving the right gifts.
